"How much am I willing / able to spend?"

Where is the assumption coming from that the amount I am "willing to spend" is for the drinking section and the amount I am "able to spend" is for the investment section?

Thanks!

Hello Akane,

Maybe I didn't get the meaning of your question but those information are given by the interviewer. At that point you should just worry to ask the right question in order to get the data needed to solve the case. You don't have to do any assumption on them.

Does it make sense?
